It's hard to believe that it's finally Thanksgiving week! Since I've already celebrated two Friendsgivings, I feel like I'm ready to switch into full-on Christmas mode which is so strange for me! But, nonetheless, I'm so excited to visit home this week and enjoy some time with family. With the spirit of Thanksgiving, I thought it'd be fun to share five things I'm thankful for. If you've followed me for a bit now you know that this is something I've been doing for a couple years. I think it's so important to take a second to reflect on the things you already have instead of constantly worrying about what you don't.

1. A JOB

I believe the highlight of this past year is that I finally got a full-time job. I had mentioned in my "I got a job!" post that it was a long and stressful process for me to finally land something, especially after I came home from m Disney internship. Like any job, there are highs and lows, but at the end of the day, I'm thankful to be able to provide for myself and get a foot in the door.

2. Being back in Charlotte

It's no surprise that I love the city of Charlotte. There are so many opportunities here and the energy is incredible. I didn't think I would miss it as much as I after I moved away from it. Yesterday I had gotten a chance to explore more of the SouthEnd area after a gratitude yoga class and it made me really appreciate being back in the city. It's so easy to get caught up in the day to day grind and forget to take in your current environment. 

3. Amazing Parents

Don't get me wrong, I'm always thankful for my parents, they're selfless, supportive and are my biggest cheerleaders. This past year, in particular, has been a giant rollercoaster between personal losses, the job hunt, moving out, transitioning into working full time and everything in between. From answering every call about every question in the book to driving four hours to Charlotte a couple times a month just to visit, I can't be more grateful for everything they've done for me.

4. The Blog

This little corner of the internet has been a part of my life for about five and a half years now. It's crazy to think that this little project started off as random mirror selfies in college to space where I get to share parts of my life and love for fashion. I got back into blogging after almost a year hiatus and I've managed to continue working with some awesome brands, meet new bloggers in the space and attend a couple cool events on behalf of it. Even though blogging stresses me out to no other at times, I'm so thankful for the opportunities and people it's brought into my life. 

What are you thankful for this year? Let me know in the comments down below! I hope you all have a great week and as always, thank you for reading!
